    My wife and I attended the open house at FoOC. The food was great. It was my dinner. The drinks were OK. Wine! They had the Orange Enzo there. Someone told me it is the color of the F1 car. I said but it is Orange. He said that on TV it looks red. Ok if you say so.

    They had a 360 Starade but no Maranello inside. Bummer.

    I met John & his wife Donna, and Robert. All are chatters here. There were many others that I knew their face but not their name. Even my wife had a good time.

    The only problem was the mechanics were the valet parkers. That is cool. They know how to drive. What happen when we were leaving is most of the keys looked alike and it was a mess trying to get your car. It was funny and all took it in stride.

    Bart - I was there with my girlfriend. Unfortunately, we did not meet any Ferrarichat people. I thought that would happen. We should have come up with some kind of way to find each other. We arrived a little late - around 8pm in a yellow 355. Anyway, hope you can make it to Crystal Cove on Saturday. We could always say hello there!

    Damn, I had a feeling the orange Enzo would show--mainly the reason I wanted to go, I had already seen the Quattroporte and the new showroom. Was the Quattroporte a dark blue by the way?

    Anyway, the stupid news people called for rain and my dad and I didn't feel like sittting in wonderful 405 traffic for an hour in the rain (we'd have to come from the South Bay).

    Bart, from what I understand, the orange Enzo is Rosso Dino which is a much truer orange than the F1 cars' Rosso Scuderia (which is kinda like a brighter Rosso Corsa with a slight hint of orange). But, they do use it for TV reasons, as you stated. Either for that or to match the Malboro colors--I've heard both reasons, I'm not sure.

    i had the same problem in that i recognized some faces from crystal cove but wasnt sure how to spot fellow ferrari chat members. next time we should devise some way of identifying each other. either way, it was a great time, food was pretty good as several have mentioned. hopefully i will see most of you at crystal cove tommorow morning.
